Large clump (in two parts, with some loose coins) of 2000(+/-) billon Roman-Egyptian provincial tetradrachms. 16900 grams total, approx. roughly 15" x 9" 5" overall. An impressively large conglomeration that, when viewed all together (as it separated after recovery) takes on the shape of the amphora that once contained it, the outline of each coin distinct and lacking encrustation but puffy and mostly unreadable from oxidation, all brown in color but with red tones and a lot of green patina, with about 60 of the coins separate from the two main blocks (which are 13,740 and 5390 grams respectively) in singles and small clumps, some of the coins showing emperors Titus and Claudius and Nero (with others likely), a fabulous display that artfully combines ancient numismatics with shipwreck treasure! Recovered from: Unidentified 1st-century AD wreck in the Mediterranean
